Do you feel like there is not enough time in your day to complete each and every task? If you manage properties for a living and love doing so, but are feeling swamped, STAFFLINK’s offshore outsourcing can help you! STAFFLINK provides a clear outline of what can be achieved and how long it will take to implement processes as well as which tasks are most effectively outsourced for your business.
In Australia, real estate agents are consistently under the hammer to do more. They work long hours, all while trying to provide the best possible customer service, complete data entry and meet with potential buyers and sellers of properties. If done correctly, outsourcing part of your workload can allow you to take on more work, as well as increase your ability to deliver substantially better results. Outsourcing is a great way to ensure that you’re documenting your processes correctly and have the right people in your team, working in the right roles. A comprehensive and professionally-trained offshore outsourced team could mean gains of up to 30% in productivity for your real estate business.
When you use Stafflink to help start your offshore Property Management journey, all the hard work is done for you. This means that unlike having one of your staff members sit down and scour through potentially hundreds of job applications, STAFFLINK has pre-approved candidates ready to go straight to work once they’re up to speed on your processes. Excellent time management is a must-have for any effective Property Manager, and with more time on your team’s hands to do the jobs they were hired to do, your business could reap the rewards.
The benefits of hiring a virtual assistant are not limited to time and money saved by recruiting new staff and the cost of wages. Offshore outsourcing can also allow you to benefit from reduced overheads. Australian real estate businesses likely require all of the following overheads for employees:
- Company car
- Laptop or iPad
- Recruitment and rehiring costs
- A work desk and chair
However, many of these items won’t be necessary for offshore staff which could in turn save you time and money!
Free up money to retain, grow or save
There’s a clear reason that a lot of bigger companies are using offshore staff members – there are massive savings to be collected if planned correctly. Take the Philippines for example; on average, an outsourced team in this location could save you around 60% – 80% on total employment costs. As a business owner, you could have much more capital to reinvest back into your business or have more support. To put that in real terms, you could hire one staff member onshore with only 40 hours of support per week or, with the same money, you could hire three staff members in the Philippines, equating to 120 hours worth of support per week.
Better customer service
It’s a well-known fact in any business that the more strategic touch points you include in your processes, the more likely you are to have happy and returning customers. However, these can often be costly and time-consuming tasks for your local team to complete, leaving your staff overworked and providing sub-optimal customer service. However, by choosing to support your team with affordable offshore outsourcing, you can provide your customers with faster turnaround times and increased customer support.
